Greening Omnibus

Being on long service leave has given me time to reflect upon my life and the green journey that I embarked upon with my family back in 2006.  I go back to work on Thursday to a different world from which I have become used to for the last 9 weeks!  It will be interesting to say the least.

It seems like so long ago when my green journey began, however I know that it has been a fruitful and amusing trip so far, which I believe may not have a final destination.  Not a problem really, because I enjoy what I do and how I live much more than I did before my awakening.  Promoting a sustainable lifestyle seems second nature to me now, and just part of what I do and who I am. I love it.

So when I started watching all of the YouTube movies I had made previously (which some may think narcissistic of me), I felt a wave of nostalgia that I just had to share with you.  I spend quite a few hours cutting and pasting the last few years into a 9 minute omnibus of those enjoyable moments that I have captured on video.  I spent the time smiling and thinking about great times and happy days.  I think you will enjoy what I have put together.

Oh and by the way, this is not my swan song.  I just wanted to do a bit of self refection so that I could focus on when I have come from and where I want to go.

    Hi Gavin, hope you are enjoying your time off.

    Just watched your video, it is very well done! I enjoyed it, so thank you for sharing. It is great to be able to record your journey and look back in the years to come.

    Hubby mentioned that we might get some more solar panels or look at getting a wind generator when we get our tax return this year…

    Gavin, the lifestyle changes you have made are truly inspirational. I started reading TGOG about 2 years ago, and seeing how so much can be done bit-by-bit really encourages me.
    Thanks and can’t wait for more.

    Great recap, Gav!

    It’s really good to have these videos and your blog to look back on, and see just how far you’ve come.

    Oh, and a hat tip for getting a Rocky Horror Picture Show song in there :-).
